The<strong> International Land Conservation Network&nbsp;(ILCN)</strong>&nbsp;is connecting organizations and people who are accelerating voluntary private protection and stewardship of land and water resources. A recent International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) report said &quot;privately protected areas deserve far greater recognition and support than is the case at the moment.&quot; The report highlights the ongoing need for training and improved knowledge-sharing.

The<strong> First Annual Congress of ILCN </strong>aims to start making such know-how available and to share best practices, expertise and the ability to build organizational leadership and operating capacity. The gathering will assemble practitioners, innovators and experts in the growing field of voluntary private land conservation and restoration, from around Europe as well as from North, Central and South America, Africa, Asia and Oceania. &nbsp;

A specific session on monitoring of habitats, a subject with many knowledge gaps, will be held, as well as a session on new technologies to make monitoring easier.&nbsp;
